How to spray paint windows?
Window spray painting on UPVC windows not only enhances the look of the house but also extends the life of the windows. This particular paint is highly resistant to the effects of the elements and will keep your frame’s paintwork looking new for years to come. Our window spraying Cardiff experts elaborate on how to spray paint windows step-by-step to complete a job properly.
Spray paint to transform your windows
Paints designed for use on multiple surfaces have a wide range of applications, including painting plastics and metals. Recolouring windows and doors made of composite material or UPVC will not be possible with all of these long-term choices. When dealing with spray paint, your imagination will serve you well. It is easy to forget that a single coat of spray paint may transform our homes into something quite spectacular. Therefore, changing the appearance of your home has never been simpler, more affordable, or more enjoyable to do.
Step-by-step process on how to spray paint windows
Although it may seem like a straightforward step-by-step process, it is a little more complicated than it reads. Maybe more like a spiral staircase rather than a straight one. By following these steps, you can effectively give yourself the best chance to achieve a professional and long-lasting finish. Here are the step-by-step instructions for spray painting windows:
Inspect and prepare the surface
- Check the window frame for any deteriorating wood.
- Lightly sand the frame using sandpaper to smooth the surface.
Clean the surface
- Avoid cleaning agents with silicone or wax, as they may affect paint adhesion.
- Use warm, clean water to wipe down the frame and remove any dust or debris.
Protect surrounding areas
- Tape off and cover the surrounding area with paper or cardboard to prevent accidental damage from overspray.
- Cover any exposed glass or walls adjacent to the window.
Prime the frame
- Apply a primer specifically designed for surfaces to ensure better paint adhesion.
- Spray the frame evenly with primer and allow it to dry according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Apply the base coat
- Choose the colour of your choice for the base coat.
- Hold the spray gun at a distance and spray a thin, even coat over the entire surface of the window frame.
- Allow the first coat to dry completely before applying a second and third coat.
- Aim the spray nozzle towards the masked area during the initial spray to control overspray.
- Adjust the distance and pressure of the spray paint to achieve even coverage.
Clear the nozzle
- Spray until only gas comes out to clear the nozzle after each use.
- This prevents paint buildup and clogging of the nozzle.
Remove masking tape and paper
- After the final coat has dried, carefully remove all masking tape and paper from the surrounding areas.
- Ensure that no residue or paint remains on the work surface.
Re-seal with matching silicone colour
- After the tape and paper have been removed, you need to re-seal the windows to make them look complete and waterproof.
Is this the same for spray painting doors?
For the most part, yes! You may transform the look of your UPVC door by spray painting it. The final coating is simple to apply, and it has a long shelf life. Once it’s painted, no one will be able to tell it’s an old UPVC door.
